I know, "sound-PROOFING" is all-but impossible.
Well then, just how much could I REDUCE it?
I'm currently considering a 3 BR 3 BATH newer-construction condo in my area as I'd have to spend about 100K more to get a 2500 sq ft home that even approaches what it offers.
ANYWAY: it has a great 21X23 finished area in the basement that I'd love to throw my HT into of course.
Nice aspect is my 11 channels worth of speakers would be on the far side. 10 to 22 feet away from the dividing wall. The drawback is of course my speakers would be 10-22 feet away from the dividing wall, lol.
What's the best way to attack this? I'd be more than willing to simply build out an (insulated) "wall-on-a-wall" 4". Is there a superior (cheaper, easier, less space consuming) methodology?
And am I sol on the BASS? I've read a lot of conflicting information, but many seem to indicate I'll only be marginally successful containing it. We're talking about some reference level playback: 85/115dbs.
I wish I could plunk down my Captivator and speakers and see where I'm at right from the start, but that's unfortunately not an option. I also do not know my neighbors situation and how/if they use their basement, but I'm assuming the worst (for me) right off the bat.
Again, I've found a lot of information, but I'd like some here with experience to perhaps give me something with a bit more detail if possible.
thanks a ton in advance,
